Abstract

This study aims to develop meta-aramid/wool blended yarns and fabrics through investigating the effect of the proportion of meta-aramid fibers on the blended yarn and fabric flammability. Five yarn and the resultant fabric samples with five proportions of meta-aramid fibers were produced by using worsted spinning system for yarn and flat knitting machine for knitted fabric, respectively. The flammability and other properties of the yarns and fabrics were evaluated. This study is expected to provide guide to the development of meta-aramid blended flame-resistance products.
